We’re back!

After a brief Christmas and (Covid-related) hiatus, we are back at St John’s Smith Square, London, to continue our 2021-22 Season. Transcendence, on Tuesday 22 February at 7.30pm, is a programme which invites us to look inward at our potential. Whether challenged by Gods, by human essence, or by new responsibility, this programme collects musical representations of humans transcending.

The evening will have the LCO mix of timeless classics and contemporary works. Nicholas Korth, co-principal horn of BBC Symphony Orchestra, performs the solo natural horn part to his world premiere of Inscapes– a piece which focuses on the instrument’s natural harmonics, and poetry mirroring and inspired by Britten’s Serenade which follows it. The haunting lines of the Serenade will be beautifully interwoven by Nicholas Korth and Toby Spence, before the concert finishes with one of Mozart’s most uplifting and exuberant symphonies – No.35 ‘Haffner’.

There will be a pre-concert reception at 6.30pm in the St John’s Smith Square basement, for members of LCO Together. Our Director of Development, Lynne Farnell, would be delighted to meet you if you have any questions or curiosities about becoming a member, or if you’d simply like to say hello.
